I have been unbelievably tired today. Got a decent night's sleep, but still woke up just a draggin'. I usually sleep super well if my girl, Bella, is by my side. Which she was all night (Bella is the spoiled family Calico cat - who takes up more than her fair share of the bed).
I'd like to be her, sometimes. ;-)
So, it's Cinco de Mayo and I don't think it's any weird coincidence or anything, but I need Gazpacho and guacamole today. In fact, I could eat those things every day.
Growing up, my dad worked with a man whose wife was from Madrid. That was my introduction (and addiction) to gazpacho. I've tried my hand at making it many times, but it has never been as good as Carmen's gazpacho. I wish I had one sure fire recipe for this delicious soup.
I wasn't even thinking of Cinco de Mayo yesterday when I dragged the kids all over the Mart looking for guacamole. I think I'm just Latina by heart. Couldn't find any guac. (Note to self: Learn how to make it at home!).
I hope all my hooligans have a super special Cinco de Mayo and will also check in tomorrow for the Friday Secrets (and a bonus!). I think you will all be pleasantly surprised!! Happy Thursday!
